.Tape. is 26 year old Daniel Romero from Asturias, Spain. He wears glasses, likes playing with toy instruments such as the casio pt88, toy accordion, and a toy spanish guitar. He uses a very simple sequencer and records his toy instruments with a simple pc microphone. Bringing together his love for lo-fi indie pop with his love for melodic electro-pop, .tape. creates a unique story-book landscape where more than likely, you'll find the princess saves the dragon from the evil prince.

This must have sounded pretty good when it came out, and I must admit, hearing it now for the first time, it has apparently aged well. I always have appreciated this sort of approach to electronics- not entirely novel, but not exactly the well-trodden path either. Check it out. Well worth your time, given the bottomless sea of free electronic music out there.
After four years of regular play, this release still brings smile every time. Thank you for making and sharing this beautiful music.

Tape - A must have!
Reall wonderful pop musik, as always the lo-fi instruments bring such a wonderful element in the mix. Nice use of tones and effects. This is a great download!

I liked these tracks a lot, mainly because they are so unusual. Very unconventional approach to making music that works well for this artist. When one gets bored of the usual electronic sounds, give .Tape. a listen.
